Yeah, now I'm definitely either going G-70 or PA2XPro. I need 76 keys, because I'm going to use it as my bottom board when I play with the full band too (replacing my 88 note weighted QS8.2). My top board is a Triton Extreme, so I'm familiar with the Korg set-up, although I played a Roland D-70 for years as well. I'm liking the pricing on the G-70 right now, but overall I think I like the Korg better. Decisions, decisions.....

Don't they all do this? Roland have had this for a long time...
In fact, how COULD you have the same Intro for minor and major chords? An NTT table would just mess up badly with a simple maj/min conversion. It's also why most arrangers have different variation patterns for major, minor, seventh and other chords. There's only so much a lookup table (NTT) can do...
The trick is in the programming. How much difference does the style creator make? Most of the arrangers ALLOW him to make different patterns. Whether he does so or not is more an indication of how good he is...

An arranger is just a tool. What matters is what you build with it..!

Not a completely different arrangement...just an Intro suitable for the minor chord.
Korg arrangers aren't sold in my area...they used to be some time ago, when the I-series was first introduced, but extremely poor sales quickly had the dealers drop the line and concentrate on Yamaha arrangers, which were much better received.
Consequently I haven't played the recent Korgs...it's too bad, because they seem to be well supported by a few here.
Great sounds, styles great editing features.... NOT ENOUGH STYLE SUPPORT they must have more styles available... SEPERATE Simultaneous MODES sty/smf/mp3 is another needed feature that hopefully OS2 will incorporate. Before I ever buy another Korg.
